Right-Wing Journalist Denied Entry Into The UK For Being ‘Racist’ And ‘Islamophobic’…Or Something

Bloody hell. What did I just read?

According to that sourcelink, right-wing Canadian journalist Lauren Southern was barred from entering the UK over suspicions that she’s “Islamophobic.”

The U.K. Home Office confirmed to Fox News that Southern was refused entry to the U.K. at the border in Calais, France on the grounds that her entry was not “conducive to the public good.”

“Border Force has the power to refuse entry to an individual if it is considered that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good,” a Home Office spokesman said in a statement. The spokesman did not offer specifics as to why her entry was refused.

Southern, speaking to Fox News from France, said that she was to visit friends in the U.K., including Tommy Robinson — the controversial founder of the right-wing English Defense League who is also known for his fiery criticism of Islam.

Southern said she was detained for six hours at the Calais border port, had her phone taken from her as she was held in a detention center and questioned for four hours in a line of interrogation she described as “bizarre.”

“They asked me if I’m a Christian extremist, asked me how I feel about running over people with cars,” she told Fox News. “They asked me about Tommy Robinson, asked how I would describe myself politically, asked me how I would describe nationalism.”

Officials cited “distribution of racist materials” as the official reason for stopping her.

This is the leaflet in question, according to Breitbart:

Context is key:

“It was for a social experiment video comparing peoples reactions when this statement was applied to different gods. It was inspired by Vice’s infamous ‘was Jesus gay’ article,” claimed Southern to Breitbart News. “Don’t suppose I know how Allah is gay is a racist statement.”

Well…I guess we know how “Allah is gay” is received now, now don’t we?


This is insanity.
